OOTD: The Rise of the Sweater Clip

I can't remember sweater clips ever being an element of style, and now it seems everybody is clamoring for them!  Do you think it's really just one woman who's responsible for the resurgence of the sweater clip?

I decided to take the plunge over the summer once I realized that cute sweater clips in a wide variety of designs are available on Etsy and eBay at extremely reasonable prices (read: less than $10 on eBay, and on Etsy too).  Frankly, I wasn't sure this trend would work for me, but for $25 for two clips, I was willing to experiment.

I love the way this skirt with its side puckering seems to create fabulous curves!

This one is a win!  Not only is the sweater clip awesome at keeping together open jackets/cardigans (you'll see one of these outfits later), but they are also perfect for adding necklace-like interest where an actual necklace might be awkward.  Function, meet form.  I'm sure you two will be fast friends.

Have you embraced the sweater clip trend yet?  What do you think?  Like maxi-lengths, I am very glad this once-popular trend is back!
